Brexit: Boris Johnson faces showdown in Parliament

LONDON, No 10 officials warned on Tuesday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson would push for an election on 14 October if the government loses, a government sources told Skynews.

Johnson said he did not want an election and progress with the EU would be “impossible” if MPs won.

Philip Hammond, MP in the ruling coalition and Ex-Chancellor, said today he “is going to defend” the party from “incomers” and “entryists”.

The PM faces a showdown in Parliament later as MPs aim to take control of the agenda to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Hammond said he thought there was enough support for the bill, seeking to delay the UK’s exit date, to pass.
